In No Time to Waste, Soskin shares her life experiences as a Black woman in the United States: her time working in a World War II segregated union hall; her roles as mother, activist, singer, and legislative representative; and her current position as a ranger at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park. No Time to Waste is presented in partnership with the Vigo County Parks Department to celebrate and commemorate Juneteenth. Learn more at notimetowastefilm.com.
